Natural wonders, wildlife and wine await in this captivating region that sweeps eastwards along the coast of the Cape; see it with a tour or itinerary
Home to charming towns and villages, pristine beaches scattered along rugged coastlines, mountain ranges and interesting wildlife, an escorted small group tour of the Garden Route is a nature-lover’s dream. You can take a trip to Boulders Beach penguin colony, see ostriches in Oudtshoorn (famed as the ‘Ostrich Capital of the World’), and visit Monkeyland, the world’s first free-roaming multi-species primate sanctuary. Plus, you can explore some of the beautiful natural wonders – a guided tour through Cango Caves is a must-do, as is a trip to Knysna, surrounded by indigenous forests, tranquil lakes and golden beaches. Self-driving is also a popular choice here as you can set your own pace and weave in smaller stops along the way – a real boon if you like stopping off at vineyards.
